Casting at a Right Angle to the Stream

In the opinion of experienced fly-casters the most successful method of casting and fishing the flies is at right angles to the stream, cross-current, allowing the flies to sweep along down stream with the current over the desirable places, always taking pains to have a fairly taut line. Usually the slightly submerged fly is the most effective. This method it would seem is, in a way, a compromise between the up-stream and down-stream methods.

The caster who uses this method should employ the slack-line cast, described above in this chapter, drawing in the line gradually through the rod guides with the left hand as the flies work around and down-stream in order to maintain a taut line. The course traveled by the flies is practically a quarter-circle from a point in front of the caster to one directly below him and downstream. They are then lifted and another cast made from a stand lower down. Care should be taken that the leader and flies float fairly straight, that is, the leader should not be bent so that the end fly tails along too far behind the dropper. A taut line, watching the effect of the current and holding the rod pretty well up, will obviate this.
